Have had my armada since January 04. Need new tires. I live in the south, so no snow. I like a quiet ride. I drive fast 80 plus and want a good long life tire. Cont. made it to 36000. Not too good. No off road, just wife driving and I tow a boat and trailer once a month on long/short trips. What do Yall recommend.

I don't need new tires, but WANT them. I have a 4x4 with those sorry no good, Conti's on it. I really want Dueller A/T Revos! But alas, they do not have an 18" yet, but am told Bridgestone is planning on a mass release of new sizes to accomodate the changing market real soon.

Have also read good things about the Cross Terrains, but they don't rate as high as the revos.

How do they do in snow and ice?

Thanks!

I 3rd it. I have them on my GX470 and they are a good quiet tire and have shown little wear over 25k miles. Excellent wet weather traction as well.

Bridgestone already has us covered. They have 285-65-18s in their A/T tires. They have the same stock overall diameter and are 3/4" wider. Good fit and many are using them. Revos are due out next summer. Michelins are good for snow and ice but are still all season and not snowflake rated. ;)

If you can wait, hold out for the REVOs. I put some on our 4Runner and they are the best AT tire to date I have had on it (4th set). Very robust construction, excellent traction and quiet. If I replace the Contis on the Armada they will be most definitely REVOs.

T xterains are not snow tires, they are great highway tires touring tires but lack the tread clearing capability of real snow tires, I have driven in slush, snow, ice and fairly deep (18") snow the tires are capable but just do not seem to give the same me the same comfort level as the uniroyals(M+S tires) on my dodge dakota.

In 4" of snow or slush the mada seems to want to be pulled into the deep slushy stuff, a sure sign that the tires are not doing the job well enough. the truck tends to squirm when driving on icy patches ( even when in 4wd)

I can drive the dakota in 4x4 in the same conditions but track straight and true and the dakota weighs 900 lbs less than the mada

At best the xterrains are a good urban all season tire I'm currently looking for a tires with a more aggressive tread pattern to use in the winter.

all the tread patterns i want to have are not made in tire sizes to fit the 18" wheel, I may have to buy a set of 17" rims to get a real snow tire
